I left a screw in my jacket that got washed now the screw is lodged between the steel drum and plastic shell, you can hear it scraping when you spin the drum, how do i get to it and get it out


Try to remove one of the plastic baffles inside the spin basket. They are held in place by one phillips head screw. If you take that screw out you should be able to slide the baffle toward you and remove it. Sometimes, but not always, in manufacturing they move a little catch to keep the baffle from moving; in that case it will be hard to slide it. If you can get one baffle out, you will have a pretty good size opening to look for your screw.

My washing machine's drum is making a scraping sound when turning


Hello,
There are two different types of "drum balancers" manufactured into washing machines today... One is a disk type (most washers with this have 2-6 depending on age, manufacturer, and quality), the other type is a self-balancing style. It sounds like you need to order some new drum balancers. The repair will take approxmiately 1-3 hours depending on if the it is a front or top-loading machine.
Hope this helps, James

Dryer drum is scraping against something and making a thumping noise as it spins


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Problem 1... Your scraping noise is probably coming from the drum rubbing the door as it rotates, you door seal may need replacement.
Problem 2...Your other problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

I hope this helps

Change one baffle only or do you need to replace all three?


No as long as the baffles are screwed in properly and no other damage is present it is not important at all.

Can you push the drum up and down. If so then the main bearing has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This is the only metal on metal rubbing you will get unless the machine is off balanced. This is caused usually by doing to heavy of loads and wearing out the bearing
